My two favourite authors. This is not the first time that I make this comparison: see here for example. I am (re-)reading some of La Sa Ra’s books; I completed his book called Darisanam and recently read Chinta Nadhi. Currently, I am reading Paarkadal. I see one more similarities between the two. Raja Rao started with Kannada and French and moved to English. La Sa Ra seems to have moved from English to Tamil.
